E*TRADE is a good place to work but a little unorganized

I worked at E*TRADE Financial

Pros

E*TRADE is a very fast-paced environment where employees learn to multi-task and utilize a variety of resources to complete the task at hand. Opportunities for professional development are plentiful. Employees have an opportunity to learn many different software applications. The environment also provides very much information to employees about the goings-on in the stock market.

Cons

Management is inconsistent. Constantly changing managers results in starting/stopping of projects and confused employees. The company also has multiple locations throughout the U.S. and resources have been juggled between those sites over the years. I think employees in some of the current locations are probably scared that their location will be closed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Choose a path and stick to it.

    Pros

    They paid to get my series 7, 63

    Cons

    Constant layoffs, little opportunity for advancement, very poor training on company procedures. No raises in over a year, miserable employee morale, having to deal with outsourced representatives from Manilla, no community involvement to speak of, no accountablity for clients isssues, performance reviews are only held once a year, incompetent mangement with extremely poor communication skills. The monotony of dealing with the same rediculous call transfers that are totally unecessay from incompetent morons with no understanding of the brokerage industry, or company policies and procedures. Losing your job with very little notice or assitance finding employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They suck, and ran the company into the ground due to poor investment decisions.
